Veterans dip out

The Veterans County team narrowly missed out on qualification for the national finals as they lost out to Staffordshire for qualification. We had lost by just two chalks in the 1st game against them despite having 5 out of the 8 winners, with Mark Thomas the best of them 16. We then won our next two fairly comfortably. We beat North Midlands by 19, with Mark the best winner again 7, and then Warwick and Worcester by 8, Cedric Bancroft the best winner 12 at number eight. Unfortunately though Staffordshire won all their three group game and so were top of the group and go through to finals day. Shropshire v Staffordshire
